Magic of Moore in NC Sandhills

By: TLP's Partners

The holiday season is alive and well in Moore County and the Sandhills of North Carolina with a variety of festive celebrations in the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, and Aberdeen area.

The Big Feast

On Thanksgiving Day, don’t miss the Blessing of the Hounds. This beloved community event is a time-honored tradition in Southern Pines and a fun way to kick off the holiday season. The event begins promptly at 10 am. Or, before the big feast, get some steps in at a Thanksgiving Day hike at Weymouth Woods. Join others for this annual 2-mile community hike.

Holiday Activities

Throughout the holiday season, celebrate our small towns with a long list of Christmas parades and tree lighting ceremonies. For something different, come to Red’s Corner in Southern Pines on Dec. 6 for the Christmas Karaoke with Elijah McCormick and Friends. See our former “American Idol” star perform and have a chance to sing a Christmas carol with him and win a gift card to support a local business. If you are into the arts, catch a number of live traditional holiday shows at local theaters and performance centers throughout the area.
